This 14-karat yellow gold click-in lever-back ear wire features a rounded, tapering front profile with a bright finish and a cup and peg mounting. Add a drop of jeweler's epoxy to the cup and set with a half-drilled pearl or gem ball to complete your design. The peg is twisted, maximizing its surface area to ensure a more secure hold on your pearl or gem bal. A hinged closure helps protect against loss and makes this earring a snap to put on. The click-in design has an opening in the lever that clicks closed over a notch in the post. Lift up on the tip of the post to release the latch from the hole.
